Why are so many companies, from huge public corporations to tiny LLCs, based in the tiny US state of Delaware, and what does the answer mean for American capitalism and corporate law? Chicago Booth Review editor-in-chief Hal Weitzman joins Booth’s John Paul Rollert to discuss his book What’s the Matter with Delaware?, in which he explores how Delaware staked out its dominant position in the world of corporate registrations and what the implications of its system are both within the state and for everyone else. The conversation was hosted by Booth’s Stigler Center for the Study of the Economy and the State and Student Life.
